Peer Speaking Reviews
Not sure if this has already been discussed, but is there anyone else who would like to see an option for peer reviews of speaking exercises on ChinesePod?
I've been doing a little studying at LiveMocha recently, and while the content and learning structure does not hold a candle to ChinesePod, the best feature is being able to record yourself speaking, and then submit it for review by the community. LiveMocha allows only native and fluent speakers of the language to review, so while I know ChinesePod has different levels / rules, perhaps advanced and fluent subscribers could be persuaded to volunteer as reviewers in our case.
Personally I find it a great way to gain confidence - ChinesePod is by far the better product, but until I started to submit my recordings to the wider world I had that doubt in my head that I just sounded awful. It's done me the world of good, and in the context of online learning it's an extra step towards the most complete learning tool.
